From the latest Construction Update: "concrete superstructure program" at B4 & B15 sites "will resume" (though it already did)

The latest Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park Construction Update (bottom), covering the two weeks beginning Monday, May 4 (today), was circulated Friday, 5/1/20 at 3:13 pm by Empire State Development (ESD) after preparation by Greenland Forest City Partners.

While that seems like lead time, it actually wasn't because it states, regarding both B4 (18 Sixth Avenue) and B15 (37 Sixth Avenue, 662-664 Pacific Street), that "The concrete superstructure program will resume."

That suggests that work at the site, which had paused out of caution at the end of March, was about to resume today. Rather, as I reported 4/29/20, construction resumed last week.

"Protocols and facilities have been put in place to ensure an orderly, safe workplace in accordance with current government requirements and permits," the new document states.

Other new work involves a sidewalk bridge to be installed for facade maintenance work at B3 (38 Sixth Avenue), and possible fence repair and installation of a new fence at B12 and B13 (615 Dean Street and 595 Dean Street), sites where new construction was supposed to start this summer.

At the railyard

Work continues at the Vanderbilt Yard, including site demobilization, including material and equipment removal. Previous documents had suggested that work would conclude in April. Now there's no estimate.

(The previous update mentioned site remediation at one track, which apparently has ended.)

Also, continuing day shift, weekend and night work will include electrical punch-list closeout, train toilet servicing maintenance and repairs, site demobilization, and track restoration work.
